The two of the three editions that Microsoft  will be releasing is Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro.  Both will be running on x86 powered PCs and tablets (both 32 and 64 bits). For an average user, Windows 8 will be enough for them. It will still possess all the basic features of previous Windows versions while adding a better multi monitor and language support.

Windows 8 Pro on the other hand, will be targeting the tech enthusiast/ tech professional market. It will provide tools and programs for encryption, Virtualization, PC management and domain connectivity.  The third edition is the Windows RT, also known as Windows on ARM or WOA. This is touch optimized and made for lightweight PCs, tablets, and form factors powered by ARM processors.
